Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 220852
DVD fails to recognize media correctly or burn a disk
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:52 EST
Description of problem:
DVD drive: LG, HL-DT-ST DVDRAM # GCA-4080N
The drive is properly installed, jumper set to master.
Bios setting tried with auto and all DMA mode settings.
Original firmware A106, updated to A109.
The burner works with all media under Win XP even before the firmware upgrade.
With Linux FC5 or FC6, it is not as cooperative.
CD +/- R and RW read, write and erase well.
With DVD +RW media and Nautilus write to disk, there is an error message that
Asks for writeable – media
Exchanging the Plus for Minus media, I am presented with an error box
And no further information with FC5 or FC6.
With CentOS 4.4, I get the same results, but the error with the Minus media
Also offers some details:
:-[ PERFORM OPC failed with SK=7h/ASC=27h/ACQ=00h]: Input/output error
/dev/hdc: FEATURE 21h is not on, engaging DAO...
WARNING: /dev/hdc already carries isofs!
Back to FC5 or FC6, I get this:
[root@Imperial-Command myfedora]# growisofs -dvd-compat -Z
:-( /dev/dvd: media is not recognized as recordable DVD: 10
Normaly, I would conclude this to be a firmware error. However, this very same
disk works fine when I reboot to Win XP.
Issuing the same growisof command above, then dvd+rw-mediainfo
Produces these results:
[root@Imperial-Command myfedora]# dvd+rw-mediainfo /dev/dvd

Note, all of my DVD RW media has been written at least once.
Also, these media recognition problem persists even if I use Win XP and Nero to
perform a full erase.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
seems to be a dvdrtools issue
which version of dvd+rw-tools?
I had FC5 running and rpm -q reports:
However after the update, I get the same results with the newer rpm:
If I use + media, it asks for - media. If I give it - media, it fails to
recognize it as above.
I think FC6 shipped with 6.1-4.1.
That as well as the most recent FC6 7.0.0.fc6.4 give the same results.
I would say: "drive not supported" ... sry..
